How to Make Easy Classic Banana Bread

As always, start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit, and spray a loaf pan with non-stick cooking spray or grease with butter and set aside. Next, move on to making your batter:

  1. In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, add the mashed banana, granulated white sugar, eggs, and pure vanilla extract; stir until well combined, then mix in butter.
  3. Stir in flour mixture and mix together with a spatula until well combined.
  4. Pour the batter into prepared loaf pan and bake for 50 – 60 minutes or until golden brown on top and a toothpick inserted in the center of the bread comes out clean.

Easy Classic Banana Bread Tips & Notes

  • The Golden Rule: ripened bananas make the best banana bread! The riper the banana (the more black spots) the better the bread (sweeter, richer banana flavour).
  • Using ripened bananas that were previously frozen, thawed then mashed adds richness to the banana bread. As well, the extra liquid keeps the banana bread extra moist and decadent.
  • To ensure your banana bread remains moist, do not overmix, or over bake your bread.
  • If your banana bread is browning on top too much or too fast, lightly tent the top with aluminum foil while baking.
